A series of science/art workshops with 3 Primary classes in North Devon 2011-12, exploring the role of remote electronic sensors in environmental data collection
I worked over 3 terms with KS2 classes at Appledore Primary and Torrington Junior Schools visiting sites on the River Torridge and Torridge estuary where Ecoids had been placed to record changes in temperature, humidity, turbidity and flow. We produced creative interpretations of the data that was transmitted remotely to laptops in the schools, and these visualisations – along with outputs from 7 other schools – were turned into dynamic animations and premiered at Appledore Arts Festival 2012.
Confluence was a partnership between i-Dat (University of Plymouth), North Devon Biosphere Reserve and Beaford Arts. The 4 commissioned artists were Antony Lyons, Jon Pigott, Simon Ryder and Simon Warner.
